Re: Intermittent cURL errors

I'm getting the error "cURL error: SSL connect error" in the production enviornment. 

 

I get the following from my local enviornment:

 

curl -v -v -v -D - "https://secure.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll"

 

* About to connect() to secure.authorize.net port 443 (#0)

*   Trying 64.94.118.32...

* connected

* Connected to secure.authorize.net (64.94.118.32) port 443 (#0)

* SSLv3, TLS handshake, Client hello (1):

* Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to secure.authorize.net:443

* Closing connection #0

curl: (35) Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to secure.authorize.net:443

 

I get the following from my live enviornment:

 

curl -v -v -v -D - "https://secure.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll"

 

* About to connect() to secure.authorize.net port 443 (#0)

*   Trying 64.94.118.32... connected

If this problem persists, I would recommending contacting your web administrator or hosting provider and see if they can help you troubleshoot the problem.

Re: Intermittent cURL errors

Thanks, but I am the system administrator / hosting provider.

 

As it turned out I needed to update the certificates on my server.  a yum update on my Cent OS 6 machine replaced the out-of-date mozilla certificates with newer ones, and the connections to https://secure.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll stopped failing.

 

I do find it funny that everything was working just fine until about 10am yesterday.  Was a change made on your end, yesterday around 10am, that would start rejecting these connections?  If so, it would be nice if you had notified all your customers ahead of time, so that they could be sure their servers were up to date BEFORE that particular time.
